Improving Parent-Youth Relationships in the Treatment of Youth Depression

Communication between parents and youth can get off track for many reasons when youth experience depression. We are developing and evaluating a group program for parents and caregivers that focuses on reducing conflict and improving communication. The program has been developed in consultation with clinicians and with parents and youth with lived experience of depression. It is designed to complement youth depression treatment.

This project is supported by the Cundill Centre for Child and Youth Depression at CAMH.
